MIRIAM & DANTE have become known for their passion for teaching and dynamic and expressive performances. They are currently based between London and Oxford, and as well as teaching weekly classes in Central London, are directors of the biggest tango school in the UK, comprised of two thriving tango academies: The Northern Tango Academy and Oxford Tango Academy.  They have been guest artists in tango schools, milongas and festivals across the world, including the Mallorca Tango Festival, Blackpool Tango Festival, Nottingham Tango Festival, Porto Tango Festival, Ulverston International Music Festival, Karlsruhe Festival, Che London Tango Festival and The International Book Fair Mexico 2015, as special guests representing the British Council. They have also been part of shows with important orchestras such as Tango Siempre, Aurora Orchestra and Daniel Melingo. They were finalists in the World Tango Championships in Buenos Aires in the category of Tango Salon (de pista) in 2015.  

We have been working on our pedagogy over the last eight years and have developed a unique method for learning, using a lot of conceptual explanations as well as detailed technique and often some anatomical explanation. We have found certain ways of explaining both movements and body awareness which improve student's dancing and enjoyment significantly - we have also had the opportunity to study with some of the important maestros in Buenos Aires and have adapted and adjusted key concepts based on our own twelve years of dancing experience and professional training. Our backgrounds and our trajectory are quite different from most dance couples and this has given us a unique pedagogical approach - which we are always excited to share with our students. Our teaching approach has been described as inspiring, warm and constructive and we enjoy discovering the best way to analyse your movements and clearly explain technique to each individual student in the best way for them. We look forward to sharing our your tango journey with you!


An Argentinean native, Dante started Argentine Tango in Jujuy, a province in the north of Argentina, where he also studied ballet with his teacher Fulvia Chagra de Gruber and Andrei Kozlov (ex principle dancer of the Kiev Opera).  He moved to England in 2008 and since then he started to teach and perform in various cities such as London, Newcastle upon Tyne, Darlington, Berwick upon Tweed, Middlesbrough, York and Oxford, with his partner Miriam. They have also been invited to teach and perform in various countries around the world such as Argentina, Bolivia, England, Germany, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Romania, Thailand, Canada, and Kenya. Dante is the organiser of the very successful Oxford Tango Festival, which is now in its fourth year and attracts dancers from across Europe.  Dante has been teaching tango for over ten years and has become recognised for his unique and in-depth teaching methods.


Miriam trained for ten years as a professional ballet dancer and is also a qualified yoga teacher.  She fell in love with Argentine tango when she met Dante on her first visit to South America in 2007.  They have been dancing professionally and teaching together since in South & North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Apart from her dancing, she also followed her other passion, which is medicine, becoming a doctor in June 2013. Since then she has combined her passion to help humans through medicine and humanitarian work and her passion to nurture the soul through Tango.  With her strong background in functional anatomy, she has become known for her clear explanations of tango movements and technique.
